The Year Round Riding Holiday: The Discover Oaxaca Ride

Early summer with towering native cacti line the trials

Fall Wildflowers

This riding adventure has it all – giant vistas, exotic flora, fantastic trails, fascinating Oaxacan culture, delicious cooking and deluxe lodging.  Experience, from the saddle, the authentic Oaxaca by riding through its forested foothills,  fertile countryside and charming villages.

The ranch is only 30 minutes from the airport yet feels like you’ve gone back in time. Plow oxen, horse-drawn carts, tortillas cooked over a wood fire and hand-woven rugs are just a sample of the experiences to be had. This equestrian holiday in Mexico offers world class riding, prize-winning horses and two UNESCO world heritage sites.
